Universal Orlando Resort has a lot of quick service (fast food) restaurants at Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. You can get the typical theme park food like hamburgers and chicken nuggets. You can also find some really great fast food dining.
Today, we are going to share the top fast food restaurants at the Universal Orlando Parks.
Top Universal Orlando Fast Food
Thunder Falls Terrace
Our first restaurant to make the top fast food dining at Universal Orlando is called Thunder Falls Terrace. This quick service dining spot is located in Jurassic Park at Islands of Adventure.
This restaurant has one of the best seats at Universal Orlando. Thunder Falls has outside seating with a view of the splash down for Jurassic Park River Adventure. You will stay dry! Your whole family will have a lot of fun watching everyone else get soaked!
Dine on BBQ Ribs, Rotisserie Chicken, Smoked Turkey Legs, Burgers, Wraps and Salads at Thunder Falls Terrace. For quick service dining, this is our favorite menu. The food is delicious and reasonably priced.
The newest of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter eateries, Leaky Cauldron meets all the expectations for the Potter-loving fan. You will find yourself under a cathedral ceiling with views towards the guest rooms in the inn. The actual leaky cauldron is available for you to snap a photo of and the walls are adorned with articles and artifacts you’ll want to spend some time examining.
You can dine on delicious menu items like Bangers and Mash, Fisherman’s Pie, or Toad in the Hole, which is a traditional British dish consisting of sausages in Yorkshire pudding, served with vegetables and onion gravy—it’s said to resemble toads peering out from a bog. The Kid’s Menu offers Fish and Chips, Macaroni Cheese, and Cottage Mini Pie.
Don’t forget to pick up a Butterbeer for dessert. This is one of our hacks! You can buy a Butterbeer at Leaky Cauldron for lunch or just to avoid long lines. This location is a must do for fans of the Harry Potter stories and for anyone seeking a delicious and unique dining experience at Universal Orlando.
Another Wizarding World of Harry Potter restaurants make our top fast food restaurants at Universal Orlando. This restaurant is called Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure. If you can only dine at one Wizarding World of Harry Potter restaurant, we recommend Three Broomsticks. This is a fun restaurant themed after Three Broomsticks in the Harry Potter books and films.
You also have an incredible view on the patio. Don’t miss out on fun selfies in front of Hogwarts Castle and get up close with the new Velociraptor roller coaster. You can also pop over to Hog’s Head bar to pick up one of your favorite adult beverages.
Three Broomsticks features almost the exact same menu as the Leaky Cauldron. You will find entrees like Bangers and Mash, Fisherman’s Pie, or Toad in the Hole. The Kid’s Menu offers Fish and Chips, Macaroni Cheese, and Cottage Mini Pie. Of course, you can get a Butterbeer or Gilly Water at Three Broomsticks, too. We like to grab a Butterbeer and enjoy the view on the patio.
Before you leave Three Broomsticks, be sure you walk to the left of the restaurant, behind Honeydukes to hear the house elves washing the dishes. This is really fun!
Fast Food Blvd
If you love the Simpsons, you will love this themed restaurant in Springfield at Universal Studios. There are several mini restaurants in this one big restaurant. You can get menu items like seafood, pizza, salads, turkey wraps, and even hamburgers.
There are more entrees at Fast Food Blvd than any other fast food spot.
Plus, this restaurant is attached to Moe’s Tavern so you can pop over for a Duff Beer or a non alcoholic Flaming Moe. We love the Flaming Moe!
One of the newest restaurants at Universal Orlando is the Today Cafe at Universal Studios. This restaurant features breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have a ton of healthier menu items. Plus, it is one of the few places at the Universal Parks with breakfast.
If you are a fan of the Today show on NBC, you will love this restaurant. You feel like you are right on set with Al Roker.
If you are looking for the traditional theme park food of hamburger and french fries, you may want to try Wimpy’s. We also love Wimpy’s, because you can get Dole Whips!
Plus, this restaurant has an incredible view of the water ride called Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges. Your family will enjoy the view while munching on your burger!
